Okay, thanks, that got me going in the right direction.

I did a git pull in the paxutils subdirectory and ran bootstrap again, but
then when I tried to run configure I got some error that caused it to
abort.  Unfortunately I don't seem to have the exact error message any
more, but it mentioned something about gl_XXXX_XXX, and so I figured I
also needed to update gnulib.

So I did a git pull in the gnulib subdirectory, then tried to run
bootstrap again... and this time the bootstrap script errored out
because gnulib/build-aux/git-log-fix could not be found.  (It was trying
to create a symlink from build-aux/ over to that file in
gnulib/build-aux, if I remember correctly.)

I see that gnulib commit 1589a8a (by Jim Meyering on Mar 13) edited
modules/gitlog-to-changelog to mention build-aux/git-log-fix in the
Files: list, but I don't see the actual git-log-fix file in the
repository anywhere....

For now, I just created an empty gnulib/build-aux/git-log-fix file
(figured that it probably wasn't actually used by tar anyway), and
after that bootstrap, configure, and a tar build  were able to complete
